Former Uganda Cranes star player Sam Bamweyana Ssimbwa has refuted claims of being a journeyman after signing a new deal with Uganda Premier League club URA FC.
Sam signed a three year contract with the side after a successful 2 and half months’ probation period – serving on interim basis after the resignation of Paul “Latest” Nkata on 24th April 2018.
In his submission after the official unveiling, Ssimbwa refuted claims that he is a journeyman and will respect his employment contract.
I am not a journeyman like many people say. Which coach in Uganda apart from Fred Kajoba (Bright Stars) and Mike Mutebi (KCCA) has spent more than two seasons at the same club? That is the nature of our job that when conditions worsen, you move on. Take a look at Express, I won the trophy but there was no money to pay me, I am a professional coach and work to be paid. At SC Villa Jogoo, the chairperson called for a change from no where. This is the nature of our job coaches.
Ssimbwa remains one of the most experienced coaches in Uganda and the CECAFA region having coached more than 10 clubs.
Ssimbwa has also set personal targets as a coach. He eyes nothing but silverware.
I thank URA FC for this opportunity given. I am an experienced coach ready to use teamwork to get results. I will work and serve interests of football and this coming season, i want two trophies (Uganda Cup and league).
